He is also known for the film Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (which Helm also directed) and his one-man performance pieces, most notably his revival of Spalding Gray's Interviewing The Audience. Helm has also spent much time developing and teaching his own "open input" approach to drama, a collaborative process focused on helping artists mine narrative material from the real world. Using interviews, physical research, devised theater techniques and dramaturgy, the egalitarian approach has been used by Helm to help artists around the world, from primary school children to auteur filmmakers.
